There are no guarantees Chandler will be close to being ready, so we are going to need another guy to stretch the field. Much like Metz in the K Gun and Graham in NO We need a TE for Marrone's Offense to stretch the field and be a legit threat

We've needed this for a LONG time.  Chandler is a decent player who has seemed great because our basis for comparison is Robert Royal and Tim Euhus.

I would take a flyer on Fred Davis for a 1 year/option for 2 kind of deal + draft one in 3-5 round....when healthy, Davis had moments of being a total beast.

TE seems to be the one position that the Bills have ignored even longer than the QB spot...when they got Jay (oh christ Im gonna kill his last name here) Remiersma, Ithought maybe they had finally replaced Metz..but I was wrong again...one day I'd really like to see a good TE in Buffalo again.

hard to imagine taking one early, not with gaping holes at QB, WR, and OL.

Great security blanket for a rookie QB...remember Ben "Winter" Coats bringing along Bledsoe his first few years with the filthy pats...

We'll take E.J Manuel this year and his favorite tight end Nick O'Leary in the first couple of rounds next year.

That fact isn't lost on all of us.  There were a few good, affordable TE's available in FA but we never even contacted any of them as far as any published reports.  The only reason I keep hearing is that Buddy Nix is scouting Pro Days and can't do both like every other teams do.

Ha, yep.  No multi-tasking it seems. Or maybe we're just going for that compensatory pick.

i could see maybe Vance McDonald in the 4th if he fell that far.  I'd say Dion Sims, but he doesn't play in the South, sooooo...

We've needed a TE since the glory days of Pete Metzelaars. They don't even get great blocking TEs (besides Jason Peters), just scrubs.

Fred Davis...

Kellen Winslow... low risk, since i assume he'd be cheap.  if recovered healthwise, he'd be quite an asset.
